The film tells the story of the Marcos dictatorship from the eyes of former first lady Imelda Marcos as well as the people who bore the brunt of the Marcos' abuse of power

Lauren Greenfield’s documentary The Kingmaker is now available on iWant, over two months since its original premiere on the platform was postponed.

The film is centered on former first lady Imelda Marcos, who tells the story of her husband Ferdinand’s dictatorship.

Her narrative is woven alongside accounts of those who bore the brunt of the human rights abuses that ran rampant under Marcos’ rule.

The Kingmaker was initially scheduled to start streaming on May 15, but Greenfield tweeted on the same day that ABS-CBN had decided to postpone the premiere. Greenfield and her team then made the film available to Filipino viewers via Vimeo and Apple TV.
